I'M GRATEFUL FOR THREE PIECES OF TECH, the digital and electronic gizmos. Two are new to me and one is an old friend... I share them all liberally... errrr, I preach them all regularly.... mmmmmm, I love this stuff and you might too.
The old friend is Strava, for sure. If social media is of the devil, the I guess I'm going to helk... because I love Strava. Let me count the ways:
- At any time, I can look back over the years and see what I was doing and the effect it was having.
- Tracking my PRs and monitoring my progress.
- Encouraging my friends and receiving their encouragement.
- Searching out new routes and studying upcoming rides.
Those are my top 4.
Electric shifting on my MTB. While I've had it on my road bike and loved it, the new 12 speed, 1x drivetrains with with electronic shifting are amazing. For example:
- It's much faster and
- More precise than mechanical shifting
- and, kind to my old joints.
It took me a while to get used to. It's very sensitive and I would accidentally shift it in the beginning, but it's second nature now. Truly awesome.
Last is the HyperVolt. I've had it for about a month now and it's the only variable in my training that is new... meanwhile I feel incredibly recovered after some blistering workouts.
I've used rollers, I've had massages. There's plenty of discomfort with each and it never goes away while going through the treatment.
The HyperVolt is different.
I use it on my legs, feet, back, arms. Everywhere.
Here's the difference.
The only place I have real, true soreness is my legs. Mainly above the knee. Quads and hammies.
With the setting on 3, the strongest, and with the absorber attachment, I'll go over my legs and find a sore spot. I'll then spend some time there... and here's makes the HyperVolt so much better... I'll stay on that sore spot until the pain goes away.
That's a big difference.
Imagine your legs feel terrible, certain spots are sore to the touch and you have this gizmo that you can work your legs over with and the pain goes away. Such that, when you go upstairs they are remarkably recovered.
Could I live without Strava, E-shifting and they HyperVolt? Of course. Would I want to? Not for a minute.
If you're looking for just the right thing to give yourself...
... because let's be honest, the family/friends ain't gonna get it - just like all they didn't get you the aero helmet or fancyshmancy shoes...
... get they HyperVolt, put it under the tree with a note from Santa.
I spent some time on the phone today with the manufacturer so I could understand the difference between this model and the new cheaper/lighter version.
You could get it, but I wouldn't.
It doesn't have level 3, only goes up to the equivalent of level 2. Also missing is the absorber attachment I love.
